Broccoli and Provolone Quiche
The broccoli filling yielded two quiches. Used a bit of fresh red pepper instead of pepper flakes. Used only 1/2 onion. Only one garlic clove. Added some cheese to bottom of crust as well as top. Used cheddar/gruyere. Used the following proportion for each quiche: 4 eggs, 1 yolk, 1/2 pint cream. Cooked for 50 minutes. Used my own pie crust.

Irish Brown Soda Bread
I really enjoyed this! It was even better the second day. I also halved the recipe so I got 2 loaves instead of four. Per another reader's suggestion, I added golden raisins, about a tablespoon brown sugar and a tsp baking powder. I used more buttermilk than called for because it seemed dry. 30 minutes was plenty of cooking time. I could see this working with other grains, too, such as millet in place of the oats. Yummy for St. Pat's.

Oatmeal Pancakes I
I make this basic recipe using steel cut oats. I first soak 1 cup oats overnight in 1 cup or more buttermilk in a blender. (I prepare the whole thing in the blender). In the morning, I add 1 egg. 1/2 to 1 cup regular milk, 1/2 to 1 cup whole wheat flour. The sugar (only about a tablespoon) the baking powder, soda, also 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp. vanilla extract along with the butter (about 2-3 tablespoons). The batter is thick, but thin to desired consistency with milk. Yum. The oats and buttermilk make them so sweet, they hardly need syrup!
